Social Work Profession

Professional social workers assist individuals, groups, or communities to restore or enhance their capacity for social functioning, while creating societal conditions favorable to their goals. The practice of social work requires knowledge of human development and behavior, of social, economic and cultural institutions, and of the interaction of all these factors.

American Red Cross Needs Volunteer

Licensed Social Workers

The American Red Cross is recruiting for new volunteer licensed mental health professionals to meet the urgent and ongoing need for disaster workers created by Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and any additional storms this season.

They need licensed psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers and psychiatric nurses.

Over 40% of all disaster mental health volunteers trained by the American Red Cross are professional social workers. (NASW, 2005)

Why Social Work?

Sixteen years ago, I would have never imagined I would still work in the emergency department of an urban pediatric hospital. My first strategy was to move to a less stressful environment. As experience has proven, there is no such place.

Amy A. O'Brien, MSW

Survival Strategies in an Acute Care Setting

Medical Social Workers

 help patients and their families cope with the many problems that accompany illness or inhibit recovery and rehabilitation, such as economic need, disability, and lack of resources after discharge to home.

They also collect and analyze patient information to help other health professionals understand the social, emotional, and environmental factors underlying a patient's condition, or affecting their optimal recovery.

In hospitals, medical social workers often coordinate services for home care and equipment following discharge, or for referral to rehabilitation and long-term care facilities.

In hospice, long-term care, and rehabilitation facilities, they assess patient and family functioning on an ongoing basis, providing or recommending services as conditions change.

In outpatient settings, medical social workers provide referral services and supportive counseling, and coordinate after care and follow up services.

Social Worker employment is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations through 2012…especially in healthcare and gerontology

Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2002

Median annual income of medical social workers in 2002 was $37,380 with the middle 50 percent earning between $29,700 and $46,540.

Social Work and Mental Health

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental

Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), professional social workers are the nation’s largest group of mental health services providers. There are more clinically trained social workers—over 190,000 in 1998—than psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric nurses combined. Federal law and the National

Institutes of Health recognize social work as one of five core mental health professions.

This theme came out of research with the general public who see social work as one of the essential helping professions. It's simple and clear, inviting the public to learn something new about the profession, specifically, how a social worker can help them. The theme also reinforces the point that social workers connect people to resources. It also invites people to start with a social worker when seeking help for a variety of issues. We ask you to use the theme and the logo beginning in March to help bring awareness to what the profession has to offer, and the campaign.
